So much to say in this one.....Here goes....
Thanks to everyone who has told us how much they enjoyed the previous blog "Sharing is Fun" it seems you all LOVED the LINK...more WILL be coming your way - just keep following the blog !!
Just take a little looksey at this..

Isn't it just the cutest little BUTTON TREE you ever did see.... and it's all THANKS to the wonderful MHAIRI who now lives up in Bonnie Scotland. She's used the Scallop Circle Punch as a base for the buttons, threaded wire through the buttons and made that the stem as well. Popped it all into a little green pot, added some paper strips and VOILA!!! You can see it in all it's glory at the shop NOW along side the card she made us - that's just DELICIOUS (there's a hint), she's truly inspirational, YAY for MHAIRI xxxx
For the last few weeks now we've been adding more and more and more stock to the website, Yay! I hear you out of towners cry!! Nina's been busy, busy, busy adding, adding, adding. In fact she's adding the Brand New Buzz and Bloom today - oh boy you're gonna love this, it's just gorgeous!!
The first of our two Mega Card Making Days took place on Sunday and I just want to say a great big THANK YOU to all the lovely ladies who were there, aside from thinking "Oh my we're never going to finish before midnight" it turned out to be right on time and a brilliant day was had by all - hope you all enjoyed your little gift! and yes I am hearing you when you say you want MORE of the SAME - In fact keep an eye out for the end of June when we've got something similar planned with Bev the Founder of BANANA FROG - more details to follow soon - real soon!!!
I can't believe how quick the stock is turning around in the shop, it seems the Invisibles may soon be "Invisible" so hurry down and see what that's all about. It's become a full time job just keeping an eye on stock control and ordering - hence why I need time to freeze - just for a little while so I can have a play with all the new stuff :)
The Design Team Call is under way - don't worry you still have a couple of weeks to get your entries in - I'm at home today designing some New Stamps for that reason. So I'd better make a cup of tea (with biccie) and get designing.

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
